+1

Synfig really needs better documentation. It has a lot of powerful features that are difficult to learn

I am planning to do a workshop training about very quick technology of character animation at LGM. See here for details.

Last month we have developed a special template which allows to produce simple character animation very quickly. I will post more on that soon.

Have you seen this "paper doll" I made? All your students need to do is design the "skin". A "cleaned up" version of the file would be used of course. For doing walking or arms. It doesn't have an articulated face in that version.

No, I wasn't aware of that. Great work, Michael! ^__^

We did almost the same, but based on the Stickman (http://morevnaproject.org/2012/02/01/stickman-tutorial/ ), so user can control many bones at once without selecting them one-by-one. Also, the character parts are automatically stretching, there is IK for legs and also the face mimic rig. ^__^

Some of the words might be slightly off, but for the most part, it is done. Loved doing it and learned a lot!
